Hi everyone, newbie here looking for advice/info.
Has anyone ever been diagnosed with endo without having a laparoscopy? Are there any other tests they can do to find out?
I'm terrified of general anaesthetic after my sister tragically went into cardiac arrest when having an everyday procedure done and died aged 26.
I'm 28, not had any kids and currently have the copper coil. Which I've had because I cannot have the combined pill and the mini pill did not agree with me, so non-hormonal was recommended. But it's not helping the pain so I've been told to switch to the depo injection (I was previously told to avoid this too as it's same as the mini pill) but I was also told today that there is a hormonal coil available that is stronger than the usual hormonal one which is only available of you've been diagnosed with endo. All my symptoms currently fit but I haven't officially been diagnosed yet and I'm reluctant to book the laparoscopy.
Have any of you been diagnosed other ways?
Have any of you tried the extra strong hormonal Coil?
Any advice would be great. I seem to be going round in circles being told one thing by one doctor and something else by another.
